Funding for Second Chance Programs

Help us to help others regain their lives back. Touching one life at a time.

Why is this important?

I currently work for a non profit apprenticeship painting program for ex-felons giving them a second chance to change their lifestyles and to be mainstreamed back into society as a viable entity in their community. This program keeps our youth off the streets, a prevention for lowering crime and out of the penal system. We are the only minority apprenticeship in the State of Virginia and partnering with the Department of Juvenile Justice and we cant get funding for these youth. We currently have 21 youth involved in this program, yet they want us to help others but won't support us in our endeavors.
